Abstract

Lean is about controlling the resources in
accordance with the customer’s needs and to reduce unnecessary
waste. Six sigma is defined: as a business process that allows
companies to drastically improve their bottom line by designing
and monitoring everyday business activities in ways that
minimize waste and resources while increasing customer
satisfaction by some of its proponents. The fusion of Lean and Six
Sigma improvement methods is required because: Lean cannot
bring a process under statistical control. Six Sigma alone cannot
dramatically improve process speed or reduce invested capital.
Both enable the reduction of the cost of complexity. Lean six
sigma (LSS) is a business strategy and methodology that
increases process performance resulting in enhanced customer
satisfaction and improved bottom line results. Six Sigma is
usually used to address complex problems for which the solution
is unknown. In this paper, the brief review of LSS application in
different area. Based on literature, the paper is alienated into
conventional approaches such as Lean and Six sigma and recent
LSS techniques applied to improve organization performance in
terms of quality, through put, producti vity improvement, with
enhancing overall production efficiency.
